Nicholas Harrington, Earl of Wyldewood, and Sabrina Winfield, a dowager marchioness, are a sizzling couple who meet when their children become engaged. Both are widowed and never thought to marry again.

When Sabrina decides to go to Egypt in search of lost gold, Nicholas decides that no one but he can see to her safety. Add their children, a dashing sea captain and Nicholas' bluestocking sister and one has a recipe for adventure and romance all around.

Readers will simply devour this delight-ful love story, originally published in November 1996. Kudos to Ms. Alexander for creating a wonderful story with a mature hero and a heroine who is resourceful and independent. SENSUAL (Reissue, Nov., 350 pp., $4.99)
